PUBLICATION CRITERIA

LICENSING, COPYRIGHTS, TRADEMARKS, PATENTS & FURTHER PUBLICATIONS

All papers published in this publication archive is an explicit act by the authors' of the papers of granting ASKG a non-exclusive and irrevocable license for the publication and distribution of the papers under the CC BY 3.0 Creative Commons Attribution License.

Under the circumstances that the published papers should be restricted against commerical usage, the authors' of the papers must explicitly notify ASKG during the submission of the papers to such restriction and to also publish on their papers the CC BY-NC 3.0 Creative Commons Atttribution Non-Commercial License name (stating "CC BY-NC 3.0") at the footer of first and last page would automatically adhere to the CC BY-NC 3.0 License.

All papers published assumes that the authors themselves have taken care of their own licensing, copyrights, trademarks and patenting issues and conditions. All readers are to expect the papers and their contents and technologies therein to be licensed, copyrighted, trademarked and patented and should negotiate with the authors to discuss issues of licensing, copyrights, trademarks and patents unless the authors explicitly declare in the publication papers the nature of the license, copyrights, trademarks and patents to the readers. ASKG is not responsible for any infringement of licenses, copyrights, trademarks and patents in any way and it is the readers and authors to settle them without and away from ASKG's involvement.

ASKG will not help the authors' of the papers to check for proper citation or attributions and also not check for correctness of the formulas and theorems presented in the papers.

ASKG allows papers published here to be further published or published concurrently elsewhere or performed elsewhere to be done.

UPDATEING & WITHDRAWING PAPERS

Authors who have submitted their PGP/GPG Public Keys and are added into the PGP/GPG Public Key Directory may simply send an encrypted and signed with their ASKG Public Key Directory published PGP/GPG keys statement to update or withdraw the paper and for updates with new version of the papers, the papers must be encrypted and signed with their ASKG Public Key Directory published PGP/GPG keys. Authors will also be provisioned a shared-secret password maintained on an off-line machine by ASKG which they can use to proof their identity over email by performing a "HMAC-SHA1(<shared-secret-password>, <date-of-email>||<email-title-in-ascii-lowercase>)" whereby the date of the email (in DDMMYYYY format) is concatenated with the email title in ASCII format and brought down to a lowercase and the shared-secret password is used as the secret key. The HMAC-SHA1 authentication code would be the proof of identity over email. PGP/GPG encrypted emails are of course most welcomed as it provides authenticity, secrecy and integrity all in one package and side-steps the needs of the HMAC-SHA1 authentication codes (as long as it's published in the ASKG Public Key Directory). Authors are recommended to request for their PGP/GPG keys to be published while submitting their papers which are encrypted using the Publication Public Key.

CONTACTING AUTHORS

Authors of papers may publish their email addresses directly and request for this Publication to allow their email addresses be published. Authors who wants to remain in pseudo-anonymity could request this Publication for their email addresses be withheld and this Publication's email as the escrow email address. Readers can contact the authors via the escrow email address (if enabled). For confidentiality and message integrity, the email contents can be encrypted using the author's published PGP/GPG Public Keys before sending to the escrow email address and forwarded to the destined authors if available.
